Playing with alochol inks

Here's a little piece I just spent the last hour and a half on.  What fun!  This was my first time of really playing with alochol inks.  I layed down the inks (from Tim Holtz' Ranger line) and then started doodling over them with a few gel pens.  Those inks are *so* cool!!  I can't say enough good things about Tim Holtz' products!!  My first love, of his products, was the Distress Inks...these are the second.  I did this on a glossy, 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.  I layed some ink down and then used the Alcohol Blending Solution - putting it onto the same piece of felt that had the inks on it - and patted it around a little more.  Fun, fun!!  I'm looking forward to getting some clear, plastic or
acetate pieces and playing around with the inks on those.  I'll let you know how it goes!  For now, it's bed-time!!
